CPAP Replacements

HHS0612_AmaraRT_SalesRep_RGBLoMany CPAP and BIPAP users don’t realize that most of the supplies associated with sleep therapy are designed to be disposable.

Masks, tubing, filters, and headgear are not designed to last a long period of time, and using them past their recommended life span can actually jeopardize your CPAP/BIPAP therapy.

Delicate silicone mask cushions can develop leaks, clogged filters can allow dust and pollen to be delivered into your airway, and over-stretched headgear can require extreme tightening, causing pressure point pain. Keep up with your CPAP replacements.

Helpful Tips

  • You will be given initial supplies that will need to be replaced every 90 days or as deemed appropriate by your insurance company.  Supplies needing replacement include your mask, filters, tubing and humidifier chamber.
  • Health Risk: Please be advised that if you do not use your machine, you may be at increased risk for high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke or even heart attack.
  • For one month after set up wear mask 15 minutes at night before going to bed to improve comfort and sleep quality.
  • Clean your mask and tubing once per week with a mild cleaning solution and let it air dry. You may view our cleaning solutions under the Products page.
  • Inspect your tubing while cleaning it to make sure there are no holes.
  • Empty your humidifier chamber each night and refill with distilled water.
  • Do not travel or move your machine with water in the humidifier chamber as this could void the warranty.
